Spicer’s take on Star Wars is perfect
Right from the get-go, White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, shot his credibility in the foot. On his first day as press secretary, he claimed that Donald Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest one ever—when it was clearly smaller than both of President Obama’s. But that hasn’t stopped Spicer from spinning the facts on the daily basis, whether it’s the administration’s ties Russia or Trump’s claim he was wiretapped by President Obama.
One of Spicer’s daily tasks is spinning Trump’s failures into looking like unbelievable successes. So Twitter came up with a new game: take tragic events from the movies and spin them Spicer-style.
